We’ve become RVA

Nicole Anderson Ellis takes a look at the last 10 years in Richmond and this week of the Worlds in Let the World Come…and Go on

But it feels like somewhere in the last decade, Richmond shed its gawkiness and woke up…cool. We developed our own style, and with it, confidence. We stopped wishing to be some other place, and figured out what we are. And what we are is a bike city. We’re a paddling city. We’re a mural city. We’re a tattoo city. We’re a sculpture city. We’re a college city. We’re a city ready to pull the dirty bandages off our history of enslavement so we can, together, wash out and examine that wound. We’re a food city. We’re a time-to-fix-the-food-deserts city. We’re a neighborhood garden city. We are, and will always be, a river city. And we’ve become RVA.

Does anyone know where to find the hours of operation for the UCI Related beer gardens in church hill?

@5 Channel 6 has a handy guide, follow this link and scroll around the article. I think that will answer your question.

You can also check the Richmond2015 website.

World-class cycling, unlike NASCAR, is not afraid to race in the rain. Think: wet cobblestones = drama/road rash/and more.
